It's Uncanny

Just listen to these quotes. They're almost identical in some essential ways. What is it?... Do they rhyme or what?

  • George W. Bush, 2002: "Saddam has weapons of mass destruction."
  • Barack H. Obama, 2013 (On The Tonight Show, with Jay Leno, 8/6/13): "We don't have a domestic spying program."

There must be something about the power of the office that enables or even encourages presidents to look straight into the camera and lie their heads off.
